The song, which pokes fun at our culture’s obssession with end of the world scenarios, is super catchy and sure to be a popular dance single this summer.

Check out the video below.

We also caught some awesome stills from the video! Check them out below.

    When I first saw this photo, I immediately thought and believed it was very much her own hair, no extensions added. Why? Because I’ve been natural and relaxed and have transitioned, and I know that shrunken natural hair looks much shorter than straightened natural hair. Her pompadour is quite full and so I had no reason to think this wasn’t her own hair. This b.s. theory that Black women can’t have naturally long hair unless they are natural or “mixed” should have died along with slavery in the American states. I have tailbone length hair and yeah I’m black. Not a weave, wig or track in sight. Black women can have hair just as long and silky as any other race. When will people comprehend this?

    Her hair looks real to me. My hair looks extremely similar to hers when I flat iron it. All you have to do, like gabrilliance said, is do a braid-out on flat-ironed hair. Flat ironed natural hair done the correct way looks very lovely, smooth, and has body. Best looking straight hair to me.

    You can tell it’s a weave because of the way her bangs are cut, how thick it is, the curl pattern is typical of a body wave… no one just curls their hair like that, and when she whips it around it falls in the same place, it’s a weave.
